2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S-430 4.3L V8 from North America
This is an excellent vehicle
The central computer failed. Warranty.
The telephone failed. Warranty.
The key has failed three times resulting in lockout. Still doesn't work.
This is a wonderful automobile to drive over long distances. I recently drove it over 7,000 miles and in one day, over 1,000 miles.
It is a delight in all handling situations with brakes you can believe in.
It is huge, but other than city parking, this hasn't been a bother. The parking assist radar works as advertised.
The car has no residual value at the end of the three year lease. Depreciation is just amazing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
